FDA approves Xarelto to treat and reduce DVT, PE

Posted on November 6th, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded Johnson & Johnson’s Xarelto drug to also include treating and reducing the risk of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Xarelto is currently used to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes.

The expansion of the drug makes Xarelto the first oral, anti-clotting drug to reduce and treat blood clots since the drug warfarin was approved almost six decades ago. Both Johnson & Johnson and Bayer market the medication, according to the Washington Post.

Deep-vein thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in one of the body’s deep, large veins–usually in the legs. These blood clots can detach and travel throughout the body, making it potentially deadly if it enters the heart or lungs. It is called a pulmonary embolism when the clot is lodged near the lungs.

If you or someone you love has suffered from deep-vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism caused by the birth control pills Yaz or Yasmin, contact the birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

Thousands of lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. against Bayer Pharmaceuticals claiming that their oral contraceptives, YAZ and Yasmin have caused serious illnesses after taking them. One side effect that has been stated in many lawsuits is the development of pulmonary embolism.

A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the lung which usually comes from a clot in a smaller vessels. The clot travels from smaller vessels until it get caught and stops the blood flow to the lungs.

If a portion of the lung is cut off from blood and oxygen it becomes infarct, or that part dies. Symptoms include, difficulty breathing, chest pain while inhaling, and increased heart rate.
